Vilsen was a great man. All the accomplishments he achieved in his life. Our family was happy to have been there for nearly the past year to help and serve this Hero. He will truly be missed. His friendship, his service. To know you are at rest & watching all of us…that’s a blessing. Rest well Sir. Until we meet again.

Our hearts ache for the loss of our sweet neighbor. When we moved into the neighborhood in 2021 he came and introduced himself and made us feel welcome. He was the sweetest most kind hearted man we had the pleasure of meeting. He will forever have a warm spot in our hearts.
